UFCU allowed me to turn my passion into a business.

I found UFCU within a week of moving to Austin over 5 years ago. I’ve been self-employed my whole life and had a lot of different jobs in the food business, but after moving to Austin, I realized I needed something that was just mine. I’ve been playing blues music professionally for over 30 years, so I decided to apprentice at a local amplifier repair shop. When the previous owner decided to sell the business, I bought it.

Ben SI opened a business account with UFCU, and now, Matt is helping me look into a merchant account possibility. I am so grateful to UFCU for enabling me to buy a business that is a huge part of Austin culture and helps to preserve our authentic music scene. We need more places like UFCU.
